Quick Quotes from 49ers LB Patrick Willis

On Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis:

“I have all the respect in the world for Ray Lewis. Being able to share the field with him this Sunday…in the Super Bowl, I want to make sure it is something people never forget; two number 52’s out there playing lights out.”

On if the San Francisco 49ers would be in the Super Bowl if Colin Kaepernick was not named the starting quarterback:

“It is hard to say. Alex [Smith] played well for our football team. It is unfortunate he got hurt at the time he did but this game is going to have injuries. When you have the opportunity to step in as a backup, you have to make it count. Colin raised some eyebrows and coach [Jim Harbaugh] made the decision and here we are, at the Super Bowl.”

“I feel like I have a lot to prove. I have not played a full season, I know a lot of people have knocked me for that but I think coming out this Sunday and getting a win will definitely help that.”

On the Baltimore Ravens preparing for the San Francisco 49ers offense:

“I think the way the first two playoff games played out will make it a little tougher for [the Baltimore Ravens] to know what we are trying to do.”
